ME 216 Introduction to Solid Mechanics

Credits: (3-0) 3

This course presents fundamental solid mechanics concepts related to stress, strain and constitutive relations in the context of linear elasticity and small deformations placing emphasis in two-dimensional states of stress and strain. Topics covered include definition of stress, plane stress, stress transformation equations and Mohr’s circle for a state of plane stress, principal stresses and maximum shear stress, definition of strain, plane strain, strain transformation equations and Mohr’s circle for a state of plane strain, principal strains and maximum shear strain, strain rosettes, stress-strain diagram for ductile and brittle materials, generalized Hooke’s law, thermal strain, and axial loading.

Prerequisites: MATH 125  and ME 210  
Pre or Corequisites: MET 231  and MET 232
